Finger Olympics might be a new product, but Heather Jose has been using them for years in her practice as an occupational therapist in the schools. Finger Olympics are a fun way to develop the necessary fine motor skills required to write. While it has always been important for kids to develop their fine motor skills, it is indeed even more critical now as children are expected to leave kindergarten as readers and writers.
Finger Olympics target the skills needed for children to develop good habits as writers. Each box will contain an activity to focus on each of four important areas: Bilateral skills, dexterity, hand strength, and eye hand coordination, along with a core/stabilization move or position and a QR code for a video that provides further explanation or activities.
Finger Olympics are primarily for children ages 3-6 (as they might contain small parts), but others can benefit as well, especially children with developmental delays. The activities are straight forward and easy to understand.
Finger Olympics are meant to be enjoyed with adult supervision. They are perfect for a little one on one time and accommodate a shorter attention span. Teachers love to use them at teacher directed centers as well.
